Busier streets and nonresidential streets will be paved at night to avoid traffic and business disruption (note: work is not planned on Friday and Saturday nights).  Striping and replacement of traffic signal loops, speed bumps, etc. will be done a couple of weeks after paving.  Call the project information line at 503-718-2760 or Mike McCarthy at 503-718-2462 with questions, comments, or concerns.
Note, regarding work at Walnut Street (Tiedeman to 116th and intersection with 135th)
Walnut Street is under construction between 116th and Tiedeman to add sidewalks, bike lanes, a center turn lane, replacement water line, and underground utilities, and install a traffic signal in place of the all-way-stop at the intersection of Walnut St with 135th Ave.  Construction work is scheduled through Summer 2017, with a three-week closure from July 25 through August 15, 2016 to replace the culvert west of the Fowler tennis courts.  More information can be found on the city's construction update page.
